Rebecca Wolitz, J.D., M.Phil.
Rebecca Wolitz is a postdoctoral research fellow with PORTAL and a PhD Candidate in Philosophy at Yale. She holds a J.D. from Yale Law School, an M.Phil. from Yale, and a B.A. from Rutgers University. Prior to joining PORTAL, she was a fellow with Stanford Law School’s Center for Law and the Biosciences, a litigation associate in private practice, and a pre-doctoral bioethics fellow with the National Institutes of Health. Ms. Wolitz’s scholarship focuses on various ethical and legal issues at the intersection of health law, intellectual property, and corporate law. Her research explores the normative problems that arise when the law allows private rights and market incentives to govern access to important goods, and she is particularly interested in the implications and justifications for laws and policies governing drug development and accessibility. Her articles have appeared or are forthcoming in the Northwestern University Law Review, the Indiana Law Journal, the Journal of Legal Medicine, Bioethics, and the Lancet.
